I can steer mine with no oil pressure but it takes a huge amount of effort. If I put the loader down and lift the wheels it will turn much easier.

Thanks for all of the suggestions! I looked through the manual and it appears that two of the hydrolic lines may be reversed. I know that the hoses have been disconnected at some point because according to the manual, my tractor model number and serial number never came with a 20 HP motor. Plus the motor model number is M20S. S for Simplicity. I'm reluctant to just reverse the two lines for fear of damaging the unit. But Ariens informed me that the diagram in their manual is correct s I guess I'll try it. A new steering unit is over $600.


The "S" designates electric start. Has nothing to do with Simplicity. If you send me a picture or describe the routing of your hydaulic hoses, I will tell you if they are correct. I am quite sure the routing of your hoses should be identical to mine. I have a Gravely 18H which is an Ariens GT18 with Gravely badging.

Thanks for the information about the model number. Here is the routing of the hydrolic lines:

Sitting on the tractor, the the line from the left front port of the steering unit goes to the front port of the steering cylinder. The line from the right front port of the steering unit goes to the hydraulic pump. The line from the left rear port of the steering unit goes to the rear port of the steering cylinder. The line from the right rear port of the steering unit goes to the hydraulic control valve.

Yes, that is the same routing I have.
